Bringing you the deliciousness
of freshly milled rice

JAPAN PREMIUM RICE employs a “milled-to-order” system in which the rice is milled only upon order placement and shipped by air to ensure the utmost freshness. This way, we can bring you the same quality of rice as you can enjoy in Japan, not stale rice that has remained in storage for months after milling. We suggest eating the rice as soon as possible after it arrives.
